About Author

I’m a real-life mermaid, writer, underwater photographer and videographer, swimming against terminal endometrial cancer one scuba dive at a time. According to everyone who knows me, I have a serious case of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Diving), having done over 600 scuba dives. According to my oncologist, I also have terminal recurrent endometrial cancer (you can read more about this in posts throughout this blog e.g. HERE). But as far as I know, everyone is going to die sometime (I just don’t have the luxury of denial). So we may as well all make the most out of the days we have rather than lament the ones we don’t, right? I live in Melbourne, Australia and usually dive on the Mornington Peninsula which makes me feel fully alive! I also love to dive in places like the Great Barrier Reef, Vanuatu, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Indonesia and the Philippines whenever I get the chance.
